My heart plays an odd tune,

one that's familiar to my ears.

The strands of each verse,

strike a chord in my memory.

The whispered words illustrate the pictures,

the memories I hold so dear.

The gentle melody sings a lullaby,

quelling all my fears.

Sing me a song of love,

one I can learn to trust.

Play a simple melody,

one to sooth my ruffled feathers.

Play a tune to break these chains,

wound so carefully around my heart.

Teach my heart a song to sing,

to help it heal again.
